I voted for England because 2 of my nieces were born there and still live there.

I think it'd be cool to see a French-English matchup for the final, and see the ancient rivalry again. Don't really care who wins, though.

I want to see it because it will be a rematch of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. "Fetchez la vache!"

I'm pulling for England now as France seems to be the obvious favorite and Croatia I don't really have an opinion on.  Plus I kind of want to see the soccer version of a car crash, in the form of England's fans hooliganism.  I'd hope for civility, as was seen with Japan's team and the way they cleaned up after themselves, but I believe England's fans and the ones who will claim they are fans will be up to misbehaving and that should be entertaining, at least for those of us removed from that situation.

And so it'll be Croatia and France now.  Belgium and England get the consolation game on Saturday.   Makes me ponder: can you imagine the NFL's AFC and NFC conference championship losers having to play a final game?  Think either team would enjoy playing what amounts to a "we didn't make it but here's a little cup for third place" game?

 

On another hand, I wouldn't mind seeing the bottom third of each the major sports leagues in the US be dropped to a lower 10 or 12 team league so that US sports could have a relegation rule in place.  Maybe then the bottom teams in the upper league wouldn't tank so hard, knowing they could be dropped to the lesser league for finishing as one of the bottom 2 teams.  And all 30 or 32 teams would still participate in the drafts, but if you are in the lower league, you are picking in the lower third of the draft round as a result.  Would be a good way to inspire American pro teams its not okay to tank a season so a good draft pick comes their way...

Definitely Croatia, and Modric deserves the Ballon d'or.

'sup 'sup, people, England is coming home! :D

 

Croatia is in the finals and I would like those hardcore boys to win the Cup! :D

If we don't win, we still get the silver, which is the greatest accomplishment for us so far, so it's cool. 

But wouldn't it be amazing if one small country (full of great athletes) with only 4 million citizens and only 27 years of independence won the World fkn Cup? :D
